Setting up an SMTP server for VSTS
the guide below to configure SMTP Server settings for Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 Release Management to use outMail as the SmartHost and Internet ...
hort answer no, it can't be done through the web interface and there is not a client to download that will allow the management for TFS, it has to be done on the server (at least for 2015).
So, I had the admin in and add the SMTP server for me and notifications are now working.
We are running VSTS 2015 and I need to set up notifications for pull requests. When I go into the VSTS online portal and try to set it up, I get this message:
TF400663: Mail settings are not configured on this server. Please contact your administrator
I am trying to find out how to set up the SMTP server but all of my searches are pointing me to TFSMgmt.exe on the local drive. I don't have this program. Do I have to download it, or is there a way to configure the SMTP server through the web portal?
